Professional Development

Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP) focuses on professional development programs and provides a forum on industry issues designed to increase the productivity and profitability of dairy producers.  We provide cutting edge programs on technology, research, production practices, business management, market research and global market strategies.

PDMP's most recent program was an outstanding forum discusssing the need for dairy farmers to connect with consumers and the variety of ways to drive the discussions.  With a panel of dairy producers who actively engage with consumers in a variety of ways, attendees picked up tips and resources to conduct farm tours, use social media, get into local schools, and how to expose consumers to the truth in agriculture.   After the networking lunch, attendees toured Oregon Dairy for an experience from the consumers' point of view.
